Hi Friends...here is some new music and a behind the scenes Music Vlog!
Filmed in Nara, Japan. I traveled with Will Ackerman to perform at the Kasuga Shrine ceremony which was one of the most beautiful concert experiences of my life. Will is quite famous in Japan from his days at Windham Hill Records which had such a big impact on the Japanese People. This was his first time returning there in 30 years. Our hosts were so gracious and friendly, Takamine provided all our guitars and we played amazing music together with brilliant Japanese Musicians. On my last day, I woke up at sunrise and hiked to the top of a nearby mountain in the Kasugayama Primeval Forest. On the way I stopped at many of the 1500 year old shrines and temples to capture the stillness of the atmosphere. In the forest I recorded a flute song inspired by this amazing place (I will put the link for that video in the comments) Nara is the ancient capitol of Japan and a national treasure. I love Japan so much and hope to return in the near future! To travel with my friend, musical collaborator and mentor Will Ackerman was truly a gift and an honor. This is the first of many...please let me know what you think and share with your friends!
